Nice!

What size? 225-45-13? That's the size A3S04's I was running on my 13x8 Diamonds.

215/50/13 V710. When those are toast I'm going to be looking at the hoosier unless Kumho comes to the table with a better size.

Nice. I was cording 1 '04 per race back in the day but the '05s and '06s are better about not ripping to the cords.

Just bought a set of Diamond 13x7's with used 700's (215/50/13) mounted on them for $300. Not exactly what I wanted but it gets the Falken Azenis (195/60/14) on '94 stock 7-spokes off my car and on to my wife's SM2L. Should last me for a couple of seasons as little as I drive the car.

I'm curious to see how traction will be limited by such a short tire. Car should accelerate like a ****!

Yes, 1900 pounds @ 210 HP on 13" tires. Acceleration ought to be fantastic (tire has a 7.5% smaller circumf).

I think from the 205/50/15 I was running last year I'll be about 3/4" lower as well with out giving up any suspension travel.

Have you driven on them yet?

Nope, car doesn't run <G>. Had a minor fire (burnt up some wires) under my dash while doing a little wiring project. The car has been sitting for about 3 months and I haven't fixed it yet. Too cold to be out driving it anyway. I'd probably freeze to death (or at least be pretty sick for a while).
